. the rest of us are counting on you. >>> good morning, i'm melissa harris-perry before we begin, we want to congratulate congressman barney frank and jim ready who got married last night. governor patrick duval officiated and asked if they promised to love each other on sickness and in health, on msnbc and fox, as long as they both shall live. congressman frank the first sitting member of congress to enter into a same-sex marriage. but now onto our top political story. when most of us think of the map of our country, we picture this. 48 states, all smooshed together with two more hovering in the pacific. but if you're one of the two americans currently running to be president of all the states on that map, right now, you're not really thinking much about the vast majority of them, because only four months out from election date, your version of the u.s. map looks a lot like this. this is a map of the battleground states in the presidential election and if you didn't see your state highlighted on that map, hate to break it to you, because your vote is not going to matter much in determini

with you -- but really bringing in communities of use we might not have looked to to be part of the team. ? i think what we're going to see and hopefully not in the next decade is the point at which the social graph, the interest graph, the local graph all overhappen into some common interface and that media becomes less about this fragmented experience and more about a new sort of narrative paradigm. i do think that's the point at which social media becomes massively disruptive to the current media experience. on the one hand it's fascinating, wonderful and i hope we do it. on the other hand, watch out. >> will, susan, andy, krishna, thank you very much for your participation today.

"washington journal," live at 7:00 a.m. eastern, on c-span. >> the problem is, right from the beginning, we start tying our hands. the first was petraeus and the crystal recommended a minimum -- force of 40 and we got 30. what did that do to us? they wanted a simultaneous campaign in the south and east to collapse the enemy. without the additional 10,000, you had to do it sequentially. that protracts the war and of that great political will at home. second problem we have, in other handcuff, is that petraeus wants to keep the search forces that the president gave him, the 30,000, much longer at a much higher level. they are all gone before this year is out. that is where we are at the point of your question. given those two things, those dynamics that have happened -- there is pressure on the commanders to stay on schedule that transitions our combat forces in 2014. in my judgment, what is happening to support that is fault -- far from condition- based. that is the date we

strategically, as well. >> the west point significance is that because it is the only way, using organized armies for both sides, it's the only way they can imagine how to fight a war. so because they think it's unethical to some degree to use a guerrilla strategy for both sides. for both sides, it's -- no matter which section you go with, you go to west point, yes, you have a sectional loyalty but you end up in a military institution that says this is the way soldiers appropriately fight. and that's a different issue than what your political allegiance is going to be. so that to some degree imprisons them. that's part of the reason, but part of the reason is that guerrilla warfare is a lot more problematic and has all sorts of problems and complications that probably would not have made it a viable solution anyways even if these guys did do that, even though some confederates talked about it. that doesn't mean it would have worked. >> sir, i believe there's actually quite a definitive book on that exact subject right there called "west pointers in the civil war" which discusses that same
